Lovibond® Colour Innovation for the Food and Drink Industry

Food and beverage processing increasingly demands a scientific, precise and certifiable means of measuring and analysing colour for quality control. The colour measurement instruments offered by Lovibond® Tintometer® are widely used throughout the food and drink industry to monitor the colour of: edible oils and fats; beer; soft drinks; baking; flour milling; sugars; biscuits and confectionery.

The respected Lovibond® brand name is synonymous with quality which is evident throughout the product range of visual and automated instruments, reference liquid and coloured glass standards and a variety of precision fused cells. Lovibond offers spectrophotometers for transmission and reflectance; colorimeters and colour comparators.

The new PFXi series of high precision spectrophotometers introduces a unique concept in liquid colour measurement – the Lovibond® RCMSi technology (Remote Calibration & Maintenance Service via internet). RCMSi offers the capability for remote calibration and servicing via the internet – eliminating any costs and time delays associated with servicing and guaranteeing compliance with ISO 17025 standards.

The new Lovibond® NC45 Non Contact 45/0° geometry benchtop spectrophotometer is the ideal solution for the food industry where ingredients and products are particularly difficult to measure: samples such as powders, pastes, gels and sauces.

Previously, such samples required protection from physical contact and would need to be prepared for measurement eg by being pressed behind glass. The NC45 enables sample measurements from a distance, eliminating any surface distortion. Now ingredients and produce can be measured in their natural, unaltered state, as the eye sees the sample.
